Why Seek Prescription Drug Detox?
Not everyone exhibits the same signs of addiction for prescription drug use. There is no set time for when someone will develop dependency, but an individual can go to extreme measures to obtain the choice of drug. Prescription drug use has become popular, and a natural tolerance builds when prescription drugs are abused. This tolerance leads to addiction and dependency. The most common prescription drugs abused are opiates, stimulants, and benzodiazepines.
What Are the Withdrawal Symptoms of Prescription Drug Detox?
During detoxification, individuals can experience the following withdrawal symptoms:
- Nausea or vomiting
- Increased anxiety
- Tremors or shakes
When Should One Seek Prescription Drug Detox?
If you notice warning signs that point to an addiction for yourself or a loved one, detox is the first step towards recovery. Warning signs include:
- Forged prescriptions
- Mood swings or disorder
- Changing healthcare providers often
- Increasing the dosage
- Using multiple pharmacies
What Can One Expect During Prescription Drug Detox?
Prescription drug detoxification requires an inpatient program in order to be successful. Stopping on your own can be dangerous without medical professionals to assist with the withdrawal symptoms. After inpatient detox is complete, the individual begins rehabilitation at Free by the Sea. Through therapy and counseling, the recovering addict works through underlying issues to address the initial use of prescription drugs. Dealing with the discomfort of withdrawal is addressed by licensed professionals to prevent addiction to other medications.
